If you're looking for professional assistance in learning Spanish, Varsity Tutors can set you up with San Antonio Spanish lessons to help you reach for your language-learning goals. Spanish has over 430 million native speakers spread throughout the globe, including Spain, Mexico, Peru, Chile, and most of Central America. The United States also has 45 million individuals who speak Spanish as either a native or secondary language, and this number is expected to increase moving forward.

There are many reasons why a person might want to study Spanish. It is the most studied foreign language in the United States, so students at high schools like Alamo Heights High School and Reagan High School or colleges like the University of Texas - San Antonio may take it to fulfill a graduation requirement. Professionals might study it to develop contacts in all of the Spanish-speaking areas of the world. Someone who enjoys traveling might study Spanish to make more of their trips. Spanish can also be a "gateway language," as developing a familiarity with Spanish can make it easier to learn other Romance languages such as French and Italian.

Of course, deciding that you would like to learn Spanish and actually learning it can be difficult. Spanish has similar sentence structures and grammar to English, but they aren't exactly the same. There are also more accent marks and exotic-sounding words in Spanish, even though it uses the same alphabet that English does. Keep reading to learn more about the benefits of working with a San Antonio Spanish tutor.

What skills can I work on during San Antonio Spanish lessons?

One of the biggest barriers to learning a new language is not having somebody to practice with. Watching Spanish YouTube videos or even utilizing the SAP button on your TV remote can help you hear fluent Spanish, but doesn't provide the interaction of speaking with a person. Working with a professional Spanish teacher allows you to have time set aside each week to practice your Spanish, ensuring that your skills stay sharp. Your instructor can also create a safe learning environment, as a student who fears the repercussions of a mistake is unlikely to take the risks necessary to expand their Spanish skills.

An instructor can also help you improve your written Spanish. If you use outlines to organize your thoughts before writing an essay in English, doing the same thing for Spanish language assignments may prove equally beneficial. You can also study broadly applicable phrases to help you get something on the paper and feel like you're making progress. When you're finished, your instructor can provide constructive criticism on where you can improve while also pointing out what you did well to enhance your self-confidence.

Formal instruction can also help you understand the nuance of Spanish. For example, Spanish assigns gender to every noun, generally according to the last letter in it. Words are masculine if they end in the letter "o," and feminine if they end in an "a." This is important, as adjectives adopt different forms based on the gender of the noun they are modifying. There are some exceptions to these general rules though, so some degree of rote memorization is required even with the rule in place.

If your Spanish studies include a history or culture component, those topics may be best approached like a high school social studies class. An understanding of the importance of Catholicism in the Middle Ages may help you understand the Spanish Inquisition, or why Spain was so eager to fund the Crusades to reclaim the Holy Land. Similarly, you might trace aspects of modern Mexican culture to the era of the conquistadors when Spanish was first introduced to the region.

What types of San Antonio Spanish lessons are available to me?

We can help you with two great services. First, we provide online Spanish courses that allow you to study with a knowledgeable instructor in a classroom filled with other students. We vet every classroom instructor extensively, so you can trust that all of the material taught is correct. Your instructor is also available for private study sessions outside of your normal meeting time, allowing you to get extra help with any concepts that you may be struggling with.

You might think that having other students in the virtual classroom with you would be problematic, but it's actually a good thing. Listening to your peers can expose you to a variety of dialects and accents that more accurately represent what being in a Spanish-speaking country would sound like. You can also work together and create a collaborative learning environment that may make it easier to understand fundamental Spanish concepts. Sharing your classroom also allows multiple students to split the cost, giving you more value for your money than you could get on your own.

Alternatively, we can find you a private San Antonio Spanish tutor who can provide individualized attention as you work toward your goals. A private instructor can take the time to understand your preferred learning style and design study sessions around it to enhance your study efficiency. For instance, flashcards may be a good way for a visual learner to expand their knowledge of Spanish vocabulary, while auditory learners might get more out of listening to a recording of words instead. Working with a private San Antonio Spanish tutor also allows you to learn at your own pace. If you're bored talking about accent marks, your instructor can quickly move onto another subject to keep sessions engaging.

We also try to make both services as convenient as possible. If you choose to take an online class, you can receive the benefits of attending a physical class without the logistical hassle. We also launch new Spanish classes every week, so you never need to wait too long to get started. Similarly, you are in complete control over when you meet your private instructor. You can meet online over our proprietary Live Learning Platform for a convenient study experience, or meet in person wherever you would like.
